Gums tingling for 9 months and has turned greyish colour where it hurts... Cause?

Past dental work?: If you had past dental surgery such as removal of your wisdom teeth, sometimes nerves arteries or veins can be damaged.

Noticed receding gums on lower teeth, and have a tingling/sensitive feeling constantly? What could it be?

Receding gums: Can be caused by gum disease, grinding/clenching, malocclusion, tooth position outside (labial/buccal) to bone support, and many other causes. Once gums recede to allow root exposure, teeth can become sensitive. See your Dentist. Referral to Periodontist for gum treatment recommended. If tooth position or parafunctional habits are present, see a qualified Orthodontist.

Root problem?: Could be from shifting teeth. More probably due to gum problem. Remember, what looks "normal" to you may look compromised to someone with professional training. Call your Dentist for an examination.

My gum papillae has a tingling feeling & there r little red dots in a circle at the center. Went to 3 dentists & all said it looks normal. Is it Wart?

Let me explain: If 3 dentists who examined you said it was normal, how could medical providers who have not met you, don't have a history and have not examined you possibly state that they are wrong. Are you aware of what you asking for?

Got a cracked tooth that needs to come out but can't afford it yet an had tingling, throbbing an numbness in my gums, what is it an is it serious?

Pressure: Most likely from an infection. Your problem cannot wait. Finance your care, borrow from a friend or relative if you must. The longer you wait, the worse it will get. Damage to nerves and tissues may be irreversible. A severe infection can require hospitalization. Cheaper to extract the tooth ASAP.

I have dentures, I have painful white sores in my gums, gum looks white, tingling gum. Pain in the jaw. And difficulty speaking, Any suggestion?

Denture sores: If we knew more information we could help you better over the internet, but the proper way to answer your questions and get you comfortable sooner, better, and for a longer period of time is to be evaluated by a dentist. When were the dentures made? When were they last relined? Do you wear them at night? Do the sores improve if dentures left out? Most likely sores from ill fit of dentures.

Root Canal 3 day ago - on Amoxicillin - Jaw still numb and tingling - lump inside gum/jaw I press outside and feel serious pain - worried Jaw Cancer?

RCT numbness: Teeth that require RCT may have a serious infection that requires multiple visits, continued antibiotic coverage, occasionally soft tissue drainage, and time to heal and resolve. Having said that, in some cases, surgery or even removal of the tooth is required to resolve the infection. No need to worry about cancer! Discuss with your own dentist, perhaps 2nd opinion with Endodontist if an issue.

What is the cause of darker lower gum?

What is the cause of darker lower gum?

Melanin: Can cause dark discoloration of the gums based on ethnicity and it is normal. If the the darker color (e.g. Dark red) is caused by gum disease, it will also involve inflammation due to engorgement of blood due to irritants, e.g. Tartar, plaque, calcular deposits, . Please see your dentist if it is raising some worries.
